Thank you. I was hoping it'd be less than an hour. We leave in 2 weeks...maybe with the lower crowd numbers and the fact that I have linked my plane tickets with DME, it will go quicker. One can hope, haha!! I'll be sure to allow the extra time though.

What about getting to DTD? I hear it's brutal...I'm planning on leaving POP about 4:00 to go to DTD for our arrival night (Thursday 9/12)

Needless to say my parents were in building 4 and we were in building 5 and they had a fridge and we just still had the old one. Dh finally went and got us a fridge he talked to a manager.

I will say I think this will be our last year at pop. We booked a 7 day fantasy cruise and booked the free dining BB already. But we are going to stay moderate next year. The food court has pretty much stunk. I haven't had one meal I have enjoyed. I tried a couple of new things and . Not sure what is going on with the food court and they have one station closed all the time. Not impressed. I understand it is a bit slower this week. Dh wants a bacon cheeseburger not a southwest burger.
Hmmm....that's a bit strange....
I know the southwest burger is specifically listed on the menu, but I was able to order a bacon cheeseburger in June. As a matter of fact, I had one at both POP & AoA and the one from POP was SOOOO much better (juicier)!! The one at AoA was horribly Dry, so much so I needed a couple of mugfuls of soda to help wash it down!!
Have you tried asking for a bacon cheeseburger? I think they are readily available upon request.....

I don't know exactly how long it takes to get to DTD from Pop, but I wouldn't describe the trip to anywhere on property as "brutal." MK is the longest trip from Pop, I think. It's more than 15 minutes but less than 20 in typical traffic. DTD is probably about 15.

I'd say in typical traffic, it will take about 15 min to get to DTD depending on what entrance you want. Also the later at night, or closer to dinnertime you go, the longer it will take. The only thing I find brutual about driving to DTD, is trying to find a blasted parking space! Now that can be brutual unless you go early in the day....but by dinnertime, it's a nightmare IMO!!!

Thanks for posting this!!!
I know my friend who is a chef there makes me stuff that isn't on the menu but I was fairly sure that I had ordered this at the counter!! Glad to see you got one too! Confirms what I believed that I did get this at the counter and not thru my friend....
Allthough it made me laugh a bit, because when we were discussing the new menu ....this is the chef's meal of choice! A bacon cheeseburger! And they designed many of the other menu items!! LOL!

I'm on a business trip and in speaking to hubby last night we got a letter from Disney. It informs us about the refrigerator problem and it also states we will not have a refrigerator for our stay. We arrive 21 Sep. The letter does not mention any refund or compensation for the lack of fridge. Has anyone else received a similar letter?

I very much doubt it will take less than an hour. It takes about 20 minutes just to get from the average gate over to DME. Then you have to wait your turn for a bus. If they are busy that can take a while. Then the bus ride is about 25-30 minutes to WDW, and the buses make multiple stops. In December it stopped at CBR, then POP, but that order could change.

We always figure on two hours to get from the airport to the resort. We have also stopped at another resort first. There are so many variables; number of people, waiting for the bus to fill, traffic, stops etc.

They are sending the letter out to everyone. Its just a basic generic letter. The credit is not mentioned cause you have to ask for it and even then you might get the run around.

Do you need to bring beach towels? Can we use the ones from the room at the waterparks?

Us too!

Kelly, if you are still around, how is the magic band testing going? (And I'm sorry that POP was a let down for you this time. I think it might be for us as well since we had such a great POR stay in June. But the price is right at Pop for these quick in an out trips so we keep coming back! )
